Welcome back to Phoenix Goran.
Just hours after the Suns agreed to send Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Suns have already found his replacement. Per Marc Stein, the Suns have agreed to terms with free agent point guard and former Sun Goran Dragic.
Suns move quickly after Steve Nash trade and strike four-year deal with Goran Dragic worth $34 million, sources tell ESPN— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 5, 2012
Additionally, the fourth year of the contract is a player option per reports.
This is a pretty decent contract, considering Dragic was reportedly looking for a deal starting at $10 million per year.
What say you Suns fan? Does the Dragon's return make Nash's move to L.A. any easier to swallow?
This contract is looking better and better.
